Experience the everlasting ice of the Tyrolean glaciers during your Tyrol hiking holiday. With the cable car both tall and small glacier explorers can reach the ice world of the Tyrolean glaciers.
These impressive alpine glaciers are thousands of years old and completely fascinating. The ice masses flow in front of our eyes with invisible speed. They form glacier crevasses and caves. They break down rock, polish stones smooth and transport them into their inner worlds. The everlasting ice holds many secrets and some it shares with us. Just as back in 1991 when “Ötzi” the glacier mummy was retrieved. For 5,400 years this male human from the copper age lay in his icy grave until the glacier set him free. The mummy was discovered on the Tyrolean side of the Oetzal Alps and he probably found his way over the Alps when he was still alive.

Glacier experience for the whole family: hiking holiday Tyrol
Your Tyrolean glacier experience starts right outside your hiking hotel Edelweiss & Gurgl. With the cable car you can quickly and effortlessly reach the rim of this impressive glacier. Small children and seniors who might find a demanding mountaineering tour too much can also experience the glacier at first hand.
The icy breath at the glacier gate, which lets out the ice cold “glacier milk”, gives an impression of how much the glaciers influence the climate of the Alps. That the glaciered Alps were an insurmountable obstacle during primeval times is easily understood when you have stood in front of the glacier tongue. Even during the height of summer you get a hint of the icy power of winter – with a cold shiver running down your spine.
